    Hi Holly, Restrictions vary from state to state. You should contact the local branch of the Federal Aviation Authority (can be found here) and ask them for more information. Unfortunately I can’t be more specific than that as I’m not 100% on all of the different states’ regulations, but at the very least you will need to inform them of your planned launch time and date and some details about the size and flight path of the balloon. This is to ensure that the balloon launch will not interfere with any other aircraft and anyone flying in the area can be made aware of the nature of your launch so it does not present any danger to any other craft operating in the area. Hope that helps! Alex
